about the project
La Caña Brothers called me with the idea of building an opener for a show about journalism that feels very classic and cinematic. They had the work of the all-time master Saul Bass and opening sequences like the one for Catch me if you can in mind. It was a blast to pay a little tribute to the style of the father of motion graphics, Mr. Saul Bass.
I teamed up with Antoni Sendra (Podenco studio) and we started the project. Podenco did the storyboard and first concept art explorations and then I continued working on the character design and 3D animation and the final composition. To achieve the old-style I modelled everything very clunky and made a low-fi animation with a posterize time effect applied in post-production that gives the whole piece the 50's flavor.
